Amaziah was a man with a disloyal heart. When he listens to the Word of God, he is blessed with victory. He becomes proud of his success and worships God according to the ways of the Edomites. Pride leads him to a great fall.
“After Amaziah came from striking down the Edomites, he brought the gods of the men of Seir and set them up and his gods and worshiped them, making offerings to them.”
Amaziah, a king who started out doing what was right in the eyes of the LORD, sets up foreign gods as his own!
Do we do this?
Amaziah was someone who listened to God at times, but then rejected God at times.
We cannot live in two camps. We are either with God or against Him.
If there is something in our lives that promotes opposition to God, that rejects His wisdom, His word – Then we need to hear what God has to say to Amaziah.
“Therefore the LORD was angry with Amaziah and sent to him a prophet, who said to him, ‘Why have you sought the gods of a people who did not deliver their own people from your hand?'”
Let us seek first God and His kingdom, let us flee from any idolatry, however it presents in our lives.
* Faithful God,
Please mark us as a faithful people – To You and You alone Lord God.
Please show us today what You would have us know.
Please help us not to do as Amaziah did, but to keep our eyes fixed on You.
